In awe of their powers? Maybe, but you know that they will mow through them like a lawnmower cutting grass.

It's just another form of cinematic eye-candy filler that contributes nothing to the dramatic tension nor towards an emotional sense for these characters. Human interest? What's that? It's simply a chance for the characters to look "cool" against faceless mobs.

The first Avengers had the same problem when it came to the final action sequence with the Chitauri invasion. That sequence was nowhere near as emotionally exciting as the battle on the helicarrier, between the mind-controlled Hawkeye, a berserking Hulk vs. Black Widow, a manipulative Loki, and the death of Agent Coulson. I will give the Chitauri battle sequence credit for being a ten minute scene that gives you a chance to leave, use the restroom, stand in line for another round of soda and popcorn, and then come back to discover that you have missed absolutely nothing that advances the plot or characters in any meaningful way.

They will probably pretend one of the main characters die but will pull the just kidding near the end like every other Marvel movie too.

The Avengers was the last superhero film I really liked all that much. Assuming that the sequel maintains the banter between the characters (which is what made the first film so entertaining), it'll probably be at least decent.

Guess they just didn't want to explore her character and relationship with her brother. Its not like DoFP was lacking in mutants making an appearance.

In the Marvel version, seems like they aren't going the Inhuman route with the pair after all. Rather their powers are born from experiments with the Mind Gem.

It was their only chance to let their Scarlet Witch be the first on screen to give the audience impression before Marvel. I think that's quite important, like Quick Silver surely raised some popularity.

I can't not picture Robert California when I hear Ultron's voice.

Kinda glad for that. Continue down that path and eventually the whole credits will just be scenes.

Though I'll still wait to the very end. Just in case.

Wait, didn't the creators say that a major character will die? Someone important? How is Warmachine anything other than an Iron Man recolor-slash-ripoff-slash-sidekick?
